Diane Halls: “Stolen Kisses”
“I loooove Diane Keaton<3” is among the only information known about new Japanese project Diane Halls, along with a few YouTube links hinting at a similar interest in Woody Allen (or perhaps just kangaroos). We’re not sure how to connect those scant clues to the project’s debut track “Stolen Kisses,” but it doesn’t matter, because the track makes enough of an impression. It’s a guitar-heavy number where the notes and strings overlap into one lightheaded cloud of sound. Only a minimal beat and some vocals interrupt the woozy guitar party, and the latter only to make “Stolen Kisses” even more unsteady. It bears a resemblance to the music of Hotel Mexico, but whereas that Kyoto band focuses every guitar note towards a destination, Diane Halls is more content to let their music drift around all lovely like. Stay tuned for more stuff from this… and maybe a few more details beyond Annie Hall clips.
